Newcomer Youth Program

The Newcomer Youth Leadership Program has been supporting newcomer youth across Toronto since 2008. The program for youth 13-24 focuses on skill-building, fighting social isolation, promoting civic engagement, and building English-language skills.

We are based at schools and agencies across the community, as well as our Parkdale Youth Space at 1499 Queen Street W. on the second floor.

*Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the program is currently taking place virtually.*

We have fun activities online almost every day. Find us on Facebook and Instagram to see the latest! 

Look at our latest flyer to see what’s happening this fall at the program.

Reach out!

Our youth workers speak Tagalog, Hindi, Tibetan, Spanish and English. Contact us if you are hoping to communicate in another language.
